The first birding guide to the beautiful, endemic-packed Himalayan nation of Bhutan was published in 1999. This is a new and completely revised edition of that book, featuring concise text and detailed maps opposite superb plates, covering every species that regularly occurs in Bhutan plus most vagrants.

For this edition coverage is expanded to include two Indian states that together with Bhutan make up the eastern arm of the Himalayas--Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh, making this the one guide you'll need on a visit to this incredible corner of Asia.

Carol Inskipp, Richard Grimmett and Tim Inskipp are unquestionably the top names in birding the Indian subcontinent. Over the course of almost thirty years they have written many books for Helm on the region and its birdlife. On this new edition they are joined by Bhutanese bird expert Sherub.
